It is a common misconception that the best way to lose weight is to ignore your hunger and starve yourself of food. If you’re not taking on calories, your body has no choice but to burn fat, right? The reality is that the body isn’t so simple. If deprived of calories, the body will shift into a mode in which it doesn’t need as many calories to function. You will feel weak, drowsy, lightheaded...in short, you could be doing some major damage to your health. Not to mention your productivity and energy levels will suffer, and you struggle to motivate yourself, maybe even slipping into depression if you’re not careful.
Don't skip on certain macronutrients your body needs them!
The body requires fats, proteins, carbohydrates, the entire spectrum of vitamins and plenty of water to function at its full capacity. Acquiring these in balance and moderation, and from a rich and organic source, will bring the best out of you in every way. Regular healthy meals are essential, but many of us don’t know where to start. What foods should you buy, and in what quantity? Which foods go together well, and what recipes are available to you? Which nutrients are best for meeting your specific goals?
The questions are numerous, and once you get the answers you will find that the groundwork is extensive. So often, the greatest challenge when trying to develop healthy meal plans is the time and effort it takes. A busy lifestyle, like so many of us lead in the modern world, is not conducive to designing and enacting a whole new diet from scratch. Hiring a sports nutrition expert can help, or a personal trainer can design your meal plan for you, but these cost big money and ultimately still leave you with the task of buying ingredients and cooking your meals.
